All Around Paddle Board Recommendations


Adventurer 2 - Go with a 2nd generation inflatable

We pioneered the inflatable paddle board market with our 6" thick Adventurer iSUP back in 2011, and this board represents the evolution. The Adventurer 2 has everything our original Adventurer has, but includes a few additions. There is a handy carrying handle on both the nose and rear of the board, which makes it easier to carry. There is a cargo net on the front deck to secure stuff. Lastly, as the board is about 6 inches longer and has a point nose, it's a slight bit faster and can accommodate an even larger rider. This is one of the most popular inflatable paddle boards worldwide, and the Chris Craft edition (color variation) was named the #1 SUP in the world by the prestigious Robb Report. 

The Adventurer 2 can support up to 350 lbs as it's 6" thick throughout the entire length of the board, so it really is a perfect board for almost anyone. It's lightweight and rolls up to about the size of a sleeping bag, so you can take it anywhere.

Mermaid - Add a splash of color to your paddle boarding game

The Mermaid inflatable paddle board comes in a beautiful teal and white color. It is a color variation of our popular Adventurer 2 board, one of the most popular inflatable paddle boards worldwide. Women really started embracing SUP a few years after we introduced the 6" thick inflatable paddle boards to the market, so the Mermaid iSUP was our first offering directly targeting women. Inflatable paddle boards grew from less than 1% of the SUP market to over 70% in about 5 years, and women embracing the sport for leisure and fitness was a huge part of that growth.  

The Mermaid is light enough for even kids to drag around, and it's made out of military grade PVC material so they won't damage it. When rolled up, this inflatable paddle board is about the size of a sleeping bag rolled up, so you can take it anywhere - even check it on an airplane.

Fit - Striking 9'10" Wood Paddle Board

The shape of our classic wood paddle board is shorter, thicker, and wider than most hard board paddle boards on the market. This makes it more portable. No need for a 12' board if you are a 200+ lb rider. Our 9'10" wood SUP is 5.5" thick and 32" wide, which gives it the stability of a 12' paddle board in an under 10' package. This makes the perfect cross over board as it's got plenty of flotation for flat water, but also has a great maneuverable shape for the waves. There's ample rocker built into the front so paddle surfing in even 5-6' waves is no problem for this board. 

The beauty of the classic wood board is unmatched, and it's also an extremely durable hard SUP with sandwich construction of the wood veneer, as well as front and rear solid tail blocks.

Social - Beautiful 11'5" Wood Paddle Board

Our 9'10" Fit model was so popular that we created a similar, but longer version that would be able to accommodate really big riders (up to 270 lbs) that wanted a great cross over paddle board that they could take in the surf or just paddle around in flat water. The taller and larger you are, the more of a disadvantage you are on a stand up paddle board. With over 235 liters of volume this board is loved by big and tall riders
